The Roadmap to Redesign (R2R):
As part of the Roadmap to Redesign, sixteen institutions redesigned large-enrollment, introductory courses using technology to achieve cost savings as well as quality enhancements.
The following links, sorted by model, include contact information, one-page abstracts and progress reports for each of the 16 institutions.
The buffet model customizes the learning environment for each student based on background, learning preference, and academic/professional goals and offers students an assortment of individualized paths to reach the same learning outcomes.
The emporium model eliminates all class meetings and replaces them with a learning resource center featuring online materials and on-demand personalized assistance, using a) an open attendance model or b) a required attendance model depending on student motivation and experience levels.
The replacement model reduces the number of in-class meetings and a) replaces some in-class time with out-of-class, online, interactive learning activities, or b) also makes significant changes in remaining in-class meetings.
